– Larry David, creator of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm
Reading this quote reminds me of myself at times. Perhaps we all have a tendency to get comfortable with the way things are. I have just returned home from a week of shows at the Magic Castle in Hollywood.
This year I performed a new show in the Close Up Gallery, a theater I had never performed in. It presented a new challenge for me. Having now returned from the week in the Close Up room I realize what that (seemingly) little leap outside my comfort zone did for me creatively. We can only grow if we are willing to feel a bit awkward by trying something new.
Earlier in the month I spoke to the faculty of the College of Marin here in Northern California.
To kick off the new year they brought me out to speak about transforming reality through Surrealism. It is always a great feeling to be a catalyst for transformation and change.
I try to push my comfort zone with each new video I make as well. I do this by experimenting with new techniques, trying to create different styles and moods. This month I would like to share with you a recent promo video we did for The Moogician. This video was to promote the Moogician to fairs and festivals. Using his existing footage, we animated his logo and edited the video into its final form.
